Lak root: uIḳu-lu
North Caucasian etymology: North Caucasian etymology
Meaning: field mouse
Lak form: uIḳu-lu
Comments: The word is a partial contamination with ḳulu 'mouse' q.v. Regularly we should expect *nuIḳu or *nuIḳu-lu here; the initial n- was dropped (for not quite clear reasons, but exactly in the same way as in aIḳ < *naIḳ 'gadfly' q.v.).
